A follow-up post: I configured Karabiner to better type curly quotes
@jayeless This may be useful...
@peemee Yeah, I do have that setting active, but it only applies to certain apps (mainly the default Apple ones). The main place I have to type the curly quotes manually is in the source files for my site – plain quotes break YAML frontmatter and Hugo doesn't quite curlify all apostrophes (plural possessive ones get missed, so I type curled ones there manually so it looks better)
On the internet, everyone knows you're a cat — and that's totally okay.
